Art Students travel to OKC to Museum

On Tuesday, March 23, the junior high and high school art students traveled to Oklahoma City to go to the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum. The students left school after first period and arrived at the museum around 11:00 p.m. They ate lunch in Yukon before heading back to the school.

The main exhibit they went to see was the Spiro and the Art of the Mississippian World Exhibit. The Spiro exhibit explores the archeological and historical data connecting the Spiro site to other communities around North and South America. There were a total of 39 students who attended the exhibit and two chaperones.

All the students had to wear a mask while inside the museum and were told to social distance throughout the exhibits. They were split up into two groups for the Spiro exhibit, and then they could go on their own in small groups and look at whichever exhibit they wanted to before meeting back up at the front of the museum at a certain time.
